My mom has passed away not so long ago and ever since then everything seems to be falling apart. At first it was that awful feeling of losing your best friend, the only person in the world that you felt you could count on in everything. But of course that wasn't enough and I'll always have something to worry about. At the moment it's our financial status. We are a family of four members, we were living off of both my dad and mom's salaries and things were somehow okay, but now that my mom is gone and dad has retired things are really rough lately. My brother's still in college and needs a lot of money, we live in a very toxic neighborhood, literally. Because of our financial problems we had no other choice but to settle here. Sometimes it's even hard to breath with all the trash outside and the noise doesn't make the situation any better, but we can't afford to move to a better area. I know moving isn't going to solve the problem and that it needs to be taken seriously, but you can't think of a solution to a problem while you're in the problem. I've graduated recently and can't find a job because no one's hiring at the moment so I can't really help my dad with anything. I feel miserable and useless that I can't help with anything at all and I really feel terrible for my dad. It's the worst feeling when you can't afford to get your family what they need. I was thinking I should start a small business in my hometown, an online store, so maybe I would be able to help with anything. But I don't have the money to start, neither does my dad. We've tried everything you could possibly think of and yet somehow nothing really worked for us. And I hate seeing my dad like this, it breaks my heart. That's why I had to do this, this is the last flicker of hope I have. All I'm asking is a little help to get my business started, and from there hopefully I'll be able to make a difference. Please don't let me down.
